, rachel. >>> thanks to you for staying with us the next hour. if you heard, word of the news tonight came for you on a device for which he was responsible. the iphone, the mac, the ipad. steve jobs was the man behind all of those. tonight, apple, the company he used to run announced steve jobs passed away at the age of 56. apple did not announce a cause of death, but it would be hard to characterize his death as entirely unexpected. mr. jobs stepped down from the company in august. back in 2009, of course, he underwent a liver transplant. and it was seven years ago that he underwent surgery for pancreatic cancer. just yesterday apple held a press conference unveiling its latest iphone. and i have to tell you, it was viscerally strange. really just profoundly odd not to see steve jobs up there on stage in his little black turtle neck and his jeans. as there were those years in the late '80s and early '90s when steve jobs worked somewhere else. despite that, when you thought of apple, you thought of steve jobs. we thought of apple a lot. just as much as apple was and still is, it chang

"the rachel maddow show" is up next. thanks to you at home for staying with us the next hour. this is russell pearce, a republican and tea party favorite. he's president of the state senate in the great state of arizona. russell pearce made a national name for himself last year by pushing through arizona's papers please law. remember sb-1070? at the time the most draconian anti-immigration law in the country before alabama got ahold of the issue. a federal judge has blocked arizona from enforcing major parts of papers please. but in the meantime, arizona voters, angry or grossed out by the whole sb-1070 ordeal started a recall campaign against russell pearce. the campaign said pearce demonstrated overt disdain for the united states constitution. they put this petition out there and russell pearce up for a vote. through no fault of the arizona recallers, they're watching a cautionary tale unfold about the way we make decisions these day

. thanks for staying at home with us the next hour. this show has been on the air about three years now. in that time our staff developed weird skills. skills like spotting fake crowds and models employed for political purposes. so like the newt gingrich campaign website showing this group of fresh faced americans all looking excitedly toward newt gingrich for the answers. but the other things that we found them doing were things like talking on their cell phones all at once and engaging in various patriotic activities all at once and looking up at the sky for no apparent reason. these are all stock photos of this crowd available for purchase. also when the koch brothers wanted to make it look like firefighters were going to one of their rallies for republicans ahead of the 2010 elections, they purchased this picture of firemen buddies from the website istockphoto.com. there's a ton of these things. yesterday we thought we had found the most unusual one, maybe the best one ever. when a blog called good as you figured out this anti-gay website in new hampshire hadn't just bought a pictur
